Shipwrecks on Shores: Maritime Archaeology's Role in Telling Forgotton Stories and STEM Education in Massacusetts
 

Thursday, April 27, 6 - 7 pm

Dr. Calvin Mires will discuss his 17-year career in maritime archaeology, and some of the program that he is currently developing to offer educational and training opportunities to citizen scientists of all ages in Massachusetts. Shipwrecks are the largest and most recognizable remains, and while many rest underwater, there are several that are found along the beaches and shorelines in Massachusetts. The field is inherently interdisciplinary and relies on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to investigate all types of cultural resources, from shipwrecks to harbors, wharves, seaside communities, maritime landscapes, and more.

Dr. Calvin Mires is a Professor of Maritime Archaeology at Bridgewater State University. He has led and worked on more than 30 maritime archaeology projects around the world, including Greek and Roman shipwrecks and harbors, Sweden’s iconic warship, Vasa, Confederate Blockade Runners in North and South Carolina, ship graveyards in Bermuda, and various sites in the Caribbean Sea, Pacific Ocean, and the Great Lakes. From 2015 to 2016, he was Director of Bridge Programs for the PAST Foundation, a 501(c) non-profit, nationally recognized by U.S. Department of Education as a leader in STEM education.
